the big deal. $4 trillion in deficit reduction over the next 10 years. speaker john boehner says he wants to, too. but there's in path to get there. the clock is ticking. the major sticking point, whether it's a large part of tax reform, wages on top wage earners go up. it could not take the heat from his republican caucus. >> we have got to be able to deliver on this promise. >> reporter: republicans say that the problem is president obama has been unable to bring his own party around to own entitlement spending that he put on the table. tick tock. the goal is to reach an agreement in the next couple of weeks so that the law can be written and passed before the deadline of august 2nd, that's when the federal government is slated to run out of money. the immediate result, checks might be cut for social security payments, benefits. salaries for military families. . stock market could dive, perhaps as much as 9%. or roughly 8$800 billion. some of it from your retirement savings. interest rates for the u.s. government and for us would shoot up. trying to get a mortgage? what about a car loan
